Lydia Smith is an artist based in Columbus, Ohio. Her ongoing project Leave No Stone Unturned is invested in witnessing what is marked, lost, and lingers in the aftermath of death by examining the remnants of knowledge embedded within burial landscapes. Challenging the structural apparatus of the map, the archive, and the document, this project’s many forms explore how acts such as abstraction and annotation can become feminist and anti-colonial interventions, exposing the slippery boundaries of memory. Smith’s multi-disciplinary research practice engages image-making, writing, performance, installation, and collaboration. She received her MFA from The Ohio State University and BA in Anthropology and Studio Art from Rice University.
